Re: Bulfinch Crossing | Congress Street Garage | West End

Phase 2a is going to be great. Even just that overhang coming down is going to be a massive upgrade for the area. Seeing the new sight lines will be cool. Plus by then the first tower will be complete too so well start to get a feel with that tower and the street opened up of how much of an upgrade this is really going to be. The street will definitely feel less dingey and closed in without that garage. That tower helps a lot to fill in that gap too and well be able to get a feel for where in the gap its placed, if its centered it will help a lot vs on the edge of the skyline now. The renders show it pretty well centered and helping a lot and the renders dont even show the hub on causeway or garden garage either. Even driving along the greenway the skyline drops away pretty quick and this will make downtown much more substantial.


The render doesnt have avalon north station, hub on causeway, garden garage, or the rest of the towers pulling the seaport skyline to the left. The filled in seaport makes the skyline extend very far away now and its not bad that its shorter because it angles upward as it peaks at IP then angles away again. Really starting to look huge.

It doesn't even have the long-since completed MT! Plus I think it's underselling the true height of this complex. I'm extremely excited for both of the main towers and bullish on the rest of the development as well.

Re: Bulfinch Crossing | Congress Street Garage | West End

For a 80's type development style---IP still dominates this picture.

Congress on the right stands out but its too far from the core.

Certainly love that the development has claimed additional skyline territory and will give us something modern and a little dreamy to look at from the Greenway soon.

This skyline render is now showing on the One Congress site. Apologies if its been posted before, but to me this is a new, brighter view with more detail on the buildings:

Re: Bulfinch Crossing | Congress Street Garage | West End

Are we above the garage at this point or are we still working up to it?
